93 Too Sweet

Night fell. The lights in the car were dimmer.

Li Xiwu leaned half of her body in Pei Jingzhou’s arms. His arm was around her lower back, and his palm was restrained. His fingers were rubbing a soft flesh, as if he did not intend to let her get out of the car just like that.

He wanted to… abduct her back to Lake Lu.

Li Xiwu’s gaze stopped on Pei Jingzhou’s bobbing Adam’s apple. “Fourth Brother should be a little heaty recently.”

Pei Jingzhou retracted his chin and smiled faintly. “What good suggestions do you have to reduce the heat?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “There’s a suggestion. But it depends on Fourth Brother’s choice.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Tell me about it.”

Li Xiwu moved her upper body. “Why don’t Fourth Brother let go first? It’s hard for me to say if we’re so close.”

Pei Jingzhou’s smile deepened. “Do you think I’m easy to fool?”

The downside of playing tai chi with smart people was that the other party was never easily fooled. Although most men were easily blinded by lust, this was rarely seen in Pei Jingzhou. It was not that Pei Jingzhou had strong self-control, but he was used to controlling the overall situation. Fortunately, he was only saying that. He did not really force her to return to Lake Lu.

Next, Li Xiwu read the information she had found.

Pei Jingzhou said, “If you don’t think it’s detailed enough or is different from what you guessed, just send a message to the other party. The other party will investigate in depth as you said.”

Li Xiwu looked at it seriously as she replied, “Okay.”

The information Pei Jingzhou had sent someone to find was very detailed. Most importantly, it was precise to the timeline of every development. The more she read, the darker Li Xiwu’s expression became. She was so angry that she almost wanted to throw the phone away.

Fortunately, she still had her rationality. This was Pei Jingzhou’s phone. She couldn’t throw it away. Pei Jingzhou could always read her mind with her microexpression. “Throw it away if you want. If it’s broken, buy me a new one.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

It took her a few seconds to calm down. She pressed on the document and forwarded it to her from Pei Jingzhou’s phone. After forwarding it, she realized that she was actually at the top of Pei Jingzhou’s WeChat list.

She was the only one at the top.

Li Xiwu was silent for a few seconds. Pei Jingzhou extended his hand. Li Xiwu came back to her senses and placed the phone screen in Pei Jingzhou’s palm. “Thank you.” When it came to being human, she knew when to advance and when to retreat. It had nothing to do with their relationship.

Pei Jingzhou frowned. “I don’t like hearing you say that to me.”

Li Xiwu changed the topic. “Everything that happened in the production team back then seemed to be a coincidence, but it’s actually not. It can only be said that Chi Xu’s methods are very brilliant. He’s a schemer who looks innocent.”

Pei Jingzhou was not very interested in the topic she had diverted. He asked casually, “What are you planning to do next?”

Li Xiwu inhaled. “Exposure, but it’ll take a moment.”

Chi Xu was too dark and his thoughts were terrifyingly complicated. If she fought him head-on, who knew he would be anxious and do something to hurt Xie Wen? Before he was exposed, she had to ensure the physical and psychological safety of Xie Wen and her daughter.

Pei Jingzhou sneered. “The son is as bad as the mother.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. Pei Jingzhou’s words were too appropriate. And those words reminded her of something. However, the car had been parked here for a long time. Coupled with the fact that they had talked too much just now, it was better to talk about it later.

The first couple to return today were Xie Wen and Chi Xu. When they were on a date outside, Xie Wen had been distracted. She kept thinking about her daughter, who was being taken care of by Zheng Yuehua at the inn, so they rushed back to the inn before five.

Originally, the second pair to return was Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou. However, because the two of them had been sitting in the car for a long time, Xu Muzhen and Liang Sheng returned to the inn first. After that, Tao Jing and Wu Jiacheng returned to the inn at almost nine.

Although the live broadcast had ended, from the moment they entered the inn, the recorded cameras continued to film.

Xu Muzhen was so tired that her legs were weak. She pounded her thighs as she went up the stairs. “I’ve challenged the longest time I’ve ridden a shared bicycle in history today. I almost vomited.”

Liang Sheng thoughtfully supported Xu Muzhen. “I told you not to ride so fast. I’m afraid you don’t want to touch a bicycle for a month.”

Xu Muzhen waved her hand. “Not to mention a shared bike, just talking about a bike makes me want to vomit.”

Tao Jing, who came in later, was holding a bobball with colorful lights. Wu Jiacheng, who was behind her, was carrying bags. The two of them went to Universal Studios and went shopping in Sanlitun to buy many luxury goods.

Those luxury goods stunned the netizens.

Li Xiwu poured a glass of water in the kitchen and had just taken a sip when Tao Jing walked towards her and handed her a small box. “Xiwu, I bought it for you.”

Li Xiwu was stunned. “You bought it for me?”

Tao Jing said, “Xie Wen and Muzhen have one each.”

Li Xiwu put down the glass of water and reached out to take the small box. “Thank you.”

Tao Jing’s eyes lit up. “You’re welcome. By the way, did you have a good time today?”

Li Xiwu nodded, then said, “I can tell you must have had a good time today.”

From the moment Tao Jing returned and stepped into the inn, Li Xiwu had noticed that Tao Jing’s face had been brimming with happiness and a bright smile. It was obvious that she had come back having a good time.

Tao Jing bit her lip and smiled. “It’s alright. It’s just that I haven’t had this feeling of a first love date in a long time. I’ve returned to the time when I first met Jiacheng. I feel like the air is bubbling with sweetness.”

At this moment, Tao Jing was sincerely sharing. Li Xiwu’s lips curled up unconsciously.

It was already past nine. Pei Jingzhou came down to look for Li Xiwu. Seeing that she and Tao Jing were chatting, he walked over. “Honey.” He called her ‘honey’ very naturally.

Li Xiwu looked back. Tao Jing quickly retracted her gaze and moved to the side. It was not that Pei Jingzhou looked fierce, but that Pei Jingzhou’s face was too charming. Tao Jing was a little embarrassed to stare at him. Although her husband was not bad-looking, he was really far inferior to Li Xiwu’s husband.

It was undeniable that they were good-looking, but the Wu family was still stronger in terms of family background.

Tao Jing said, “Then I’ll go up first.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Good night.”

Tao Jing nodded and turned to go upstairs.

Pei Jingzhou walked over and his gaze landed on the box in Li Xiwu’s hand. Then, he looked away. “Aren’t you tired?”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Not really.” She was not sleepy. In addition, she had a good chat with Tao Jing just now. She could be said to be full of energy. She opened the box Tao Jing had given her. Inside were macarons. She picked one up, intending to try it, but before she could put it into her mouth, she felt a hot gaze on her—

Li Xiwu looked up. “Does Fourth Brother want to eat?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “It’s too sweet.”

Before Li Xiwu could finish her sentence, she suddenly added, “Can it be as sweet as me?”
